No Bake Cookie Recipe
I really love a good no bake cookie. I made these for my daughter's friends, and they were quickly gobbled up! I was really surprised, but everyone wanted seconds and thirds. I suppose you can't beat the combination of peanut butter and chocolate in this no bake cookie recipe.
Don't you just want to pop one of those into your mouth? These guys are chewy, yummy, and easy to make. Who could ask for more? You might want to make a double batch because these babies are addictive and they go fast.
The first time I ever made these cookies, I didn't understand their name. The fact that you still must put everything in a pan and cook it over the stove was confusing. I guess it doesn't technically bake in the oven, but that seemed like splitting hairs to me. I soon learned to get over it because these cookies are YUMMY!!
I used almond bark in this no bake cookie recipe because I didn't have any cocoa powder on hand. I loved the change! The cookies didn't get the dark chocolatey color they usually have but they still had the chocolate flavor. They even seemed more oatey and chewy to me. If you don't have the almond bark, you can substitute 4 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder.
No Bake Cookies
- 1 3/4 cups white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3 squares almond bark
- 3 cups quick cooking oats
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
Add the butter, milk, sugar, and almond bark to a pan. Bring to a boil and let boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in peanut butter, oats, and vanilla. Using a teaspoon, drop cookies onto wax paper. Let cool and enjoy.
I hope you try these cookies. I'm sure you will love them as much as we do.
